Sounds like another great, fun card workout. I do my own version of a "deck of cards" workout.. If anyone's interested I posted it as a blog on my page

There are actual decks of cards you can get to design a workout on the fly:

I haven't tried them yet but they look neat!

We used to do that for fun in the Marines. Depending on what you pick for the cards to represent it is a crazy workout! Lots of fun - lots of work!

I hate HATE H A T E burpees. LOL.

Sounds like a 'fun' (i.e. difficult!) workout! Great job on getting it done!

So, I work with a personal trainer who specializes in boxing and today as a warm-up he had me do a 52 card workout. Each suite represents a different exercise they were: jumping jacks, burpee's, two arm swings with 22 lb kettlebell, and slams with a medicine ball. He mixed the cards up and and started flipping. Each number card was worth face value, face cards=10 and aces are 11. So 8 of hearts would represent say 8 burpees. Anyway, this is a great exercise that can even be done away from home with no equipment if you substitute swings and slams with pushups and situps or something of that sort. Took me 16 minutes which he said was very fast!! It was very hard but kinda fun too!
